More information

  • Usage

    The scopolamine patch (Transderm Scop) utilizes a transdermal patch system to deliver the medication. Scopolamine itself is an anticholinergic agent and a belladonna alkaloid. Scopolamine binds to muscarinic receptor sites in the parasympathetic nervous system and affects smooth muscles that are sensitive to acetylcholine. It is believed that scopolamine functions by impeding communication (cholinergic transmission) from the reticular formation of the vomiting center and the vestibular nuclei, implying a central nervous system effect. Through the transdermal patch, scopolamine attains peak levels in the plasma at around 24 hours with initial amount being detectable at 4 hours. Scopolamine has an observed half-life of approximately 9.5 hours and only a small percentage of the unchanged version of the drug is excreted in the urine. Scopolamine can also block the secretion of sweat.

  • Scopolamine – Side Effects

    A scopolamine patch, like other medications, can cause side effects. Side effects from scopolamine use include dry mouth, urinary retention, visual changes and drowsiness. Scopolamine should generally not be used in conjunction with other medications or in patients with glaucoma, seizures, psychosis, intestinal obstruction, bladder obstruction or the elderly. People who have had hypersensitivity or allergic reactions to scopolamine or other belladonna alkaloids should not use the medication. Scopolamine and alcohol should not be used together. Any questions regarding scopolamine’s side effects should be discussed with one’s pharmacist and medical provider before use.

  • Cost Information

    A scopolamine patch (Transderm Scop) is a moderately affordable medication available for $7 per patch at many pharmacies once a prescription has been written for the medication. The cost associated with a scopolamine patch may be covered by the cost of one’s insurance plan. Additionally, scopolamine coupons may be available online for people who are looking to reduce the cost even further. Farmington Drugs & Medical Supplies takes pride in offering the most cost efficient services and prescriptions to our patients.

  • Dosage

    Scopolamine patches are typically available as circular, flat, continuous release patches containing scopolamine 1.5 mg that are placed behind the ear (postauricular). With this design, Transderm Scop patches are made to deliver scopolamine 1 mg over three days. Scopolamine itself is a viscous liquid that is embedded into a drug reservoir into the patch. Scopolamine patches should be stored at 20° C to 25° C.
